"Prospering Life Events handled all of the event planning for the 2016 Richland Source NOL-OCC Basketball Challenge. We wanted them to create a VIP experience in a high school gym, which seemed impossible to us. Shanna and her team came through in a huge way. I would use them again in a heartbeat."

"Recently I worked with Shanna on an event. I told her what the event was and where it was going to be held. The fun thing about the event was it so out of the box for me. Every now and then she would drop me hints wanting my advice if this or that was ok. I told her to do what she does best. The day of the big event came I walked in and couldn't believe what she had done. It was truly amazing. From the lighting to the basketball hoops. Every detail was gorgeous. It doesn't matter what you are planning a wedding, kids party, or a basketball game she truly is the best... Thank you Shanna and your team for everything!!"

"I led a team that reinstated our schools Live and Silent Auction and moved it from the spring to the fall and rebranded with a new name — The Fall Gala.

For our first year, we chose a black and white masquerade theme, but we were struggling on how to transform our school gymnasium for the event.

One of our co-chairs met Shanna at an event just four weeks ahead of our event date and asked her to come look at our space and provide us some guidance. After that consultation we told her our budget and she found a way to make it work. We told her to go and work her magic!

Her vision was AMAZING! She found a very creative way to lower the ceilings, added a beautiful chandelier to the bar, beautiful centerpieces that met the requirements of our auctioneer. Outside the gym, lots of little elegant touches welcomed our visitors.

It was a home run! Our attendees couldn't stop talking about the decor and how we made a gym not look like a gym. Our parishioners and parents that attended had a great time.

We raised over $30,000 for our church and school! Not bad for the first year after a several year hiatus. We've already told Shanna to "ink" in our weekend for next year."

Currently on our honeymoon and had a free minute and can't stop thinking about our wedding day. Getting Shanna to help with our wedding was a gift from my new mother in law Trina Thomas. To give some honest feedback , at first I was a little skeptical. Who really needs a wedding planner I thought... boy was I wrong. And to be honest you, you might not even realize It until the big day is on you. On the days leading up to, and the day of the big day there was a million things going on and going thru our head but it was on those days we are forever grateful for Shanna. For the majority of the planning I was deployed and had no idea what to expect. But I came home had a couple months to relax and the wedding was on us before we knew it and it exceeded my wildest expectations. Shanna held everything together,she worked til all hours of the night while we were off drinking and enjoying friends company. When the bride and I were going bonkers over some probably not so big of a deal things she kept us sane and handled business so we could enjoy our day! We can't thank you enough and we will recommend prospering life events to anyone looking for help on their big day!

"Shanna recently put together the cutest Minnie Mouse birthday party ever for my 3 -year- old!!! 98% of the decorations were perfectly handmade. She went above and beyond to make Mickey Mouse ears for the boys. Shanna pays attention to detail, has amazing ideas, and will do her best to make sure you’re completely happy. She is always on the look out for a great deal, which I appreciate as a single mom on a budget. Most importantly, my daughter absolutely loved all the decorations and balloons at her party, which made me a very happy mama. I will definitely come back for all my party needs and would recommend Prospering Life Events to anyone"!

"I want to thank Shanna of Prospering Life Events, for the wonderful baby shower. She took a ordinary garage and made it into a wonderful book themed party. The pictures are nice but they really don’t do it justice. It was even prettier in person. Everything ran smoothly and it was a big success. Thanks again."

"Shanna recently was hired to plan my wedding! I can't even explain what a wonderful job she did. The hall looked like something straight from the 70's before Shanna worked her magic. When I saw everything for the first time I was completely blown away! It was BEAUTIFUL! I didn't have to worry about a thing on my wedding day. Just showing up. Shanna made everything stress free and perfect! I am not sure what I would have done without her. She made me feel like the most important person in the work every time we spoke. What a professional, caring, amazing woman you are Shanna! I wish you the best. Thank you times a million"

CRYSTAL SMITH

"Shanna was hired as the wedding planner for my wedding. She did a fantastic job! The wedding was outside, and the reception was in a pole barn. It turned out to be way more than my dream wedding. It was so beautiful!!! We have had so many comments on how beautiful the decorations were, and the ceremony and reception was so smooth, and stress free! Thank you Shanna for everything!!

ANGELA DIEHL

"Shanna of Prospering Life Events is such a wonderful colleague to have as a friend and a mentor. She is very involved in our community and is actively involved with the Richland Chamber of Commerce and the SBDC. She recently coordinated and planned a bridal show in Richland County and she taught me so much about how to plan and coordinate a huge event to bring people in our community together. Inspiration is not nearly a strong enough word to describe what she means to me. I am so fortunate to have her guidance and advice as I have ventured into the world of weddings. She inspires me to think about how I can advance in my business and be actively involved in our community. I couldn't possibly thank her enough and I look forward to many years of friendship with her as I know she will help me to grow and learn how to be a great business owner."
